CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application is a continuation-in-part of pending application Ser. No. 632,777 filed July 20, 1984, which is now abandoned.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

This invention relates to additives which are useful as dispersants and/or detergents in lubricating oils. In particular, this invention is directed toward polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides wherein one or more of the amino nitrogens of the succinimide has been converted to a hydrocarbyl carbamate, a hydroxyhydrocarbylcarbamate or a hydroxy polyoxyalkylene carbamate. The modified polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides of this invention have been found to possess improved dispersancy and/or detergency properties when employed in a lubricating oil. These modified succinimides are also useful as detergents and/or dispersants in fuels.

2. Prior Art

Alkenyl or alkyl succinimides have been previously modified with alkylene oxides to produce poly(oxyalkylene)hydroxy derivatives thereof. These alkylene oxide treated succinimides are taught as additives for lubricating oils (see U.S. Pat. Nos. 3,373,111 and 3,367,943). U.S. Pat. No. 2,991,162 discloses carburetor detergent additives for gasoline obtained by reacting an N-alkyl propylene diamine with ethylene carbonate to produce a two-component detergent additive consisting of a carbamate and a urea compound. U.S. Pat. No. 3,652,240 discloses carburetor detergent additives for hydrocarbonaceous fuel which are carbamates formed by the reaction of an amino-amide with ethylene carbonate. Karol et al, U.S. Pat. No. 4,460,381 discloses oxalic acid derivatives of mono- or bis-succinimides as fuel stabilizers. Karol et al, U.S. Pat. No. 4,482,464, discloses succinimides which have been modified by treatment with a hydroxyalkylene carboxylic acid selected from glycolic acid, lactic acid, 2-hydroxymethyl propionic acid and 2,2'-bis-hydroxymethylpropionic acid. These modified succinimides of U.S. Pat. No. 4,482,464 are disclosed as lubricating oil additives. U.S. Pat. No. 4,490,154 discloses fuels containing an alkenylsuccinyl polyglycolcarbonate ester as a deposit control additive. U.S. Pat. No. 3,216,936 discloses a product prepared from an aliphatic amine, a polymer substituted succinic acid and an aliphatic monocarboxylic acid. However, there is no teaching in these patents, or apparently elsewhere, to modify these polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides in the manner of this invention.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It has now been found that polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides may be modified to yield a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide wherein one or more of the nitrogens of the polyamino moiety is substituted with a hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl, a hydroxyhydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl or a hydroxy poly(oxyalkylene)oxycarbonyl. These modified succinimides are improved dispersants and/or detergents for use in fuels or oils. Accordingly, the present invention also relates to a lubricating oil composition comprising a major amount of an oil of lubricating viscosity and an amount of a modified polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide sufficient to provide dispersancy and/or detergency.

Another composition aspect of this invention is a fuel composition comprising a major portion of a hydrocarbon boiling in a gasoline or diesel range and an amount of a modified polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide sufficient to provide dispersancy and/or detergency.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The modified polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides of this invention are prepared from a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide. In turn, these materials are prepared by reacting an alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride with a polyamine as shown in reaction (1) below: ##STR1## wherein R is an alkenyl or alkyl group of from 10 to 300 carbon atoms; and R1 is the remainder of the polyamino moiety.

In general, the alkenyl or alkyl group of the succinimide is from 10 to 300 carbon atoms. While the modified succinimides of this invention possess good detergency properties even for alkenyl or alkyl groups of less than 20 carbon atoms, dispersancy is enhanced when the alkenyl or alkyl group is at least 20 carbon atoms. Accordingly, in a preferred embodiment, the alkenyl or alkyl group of the succinimide is at least 20 carbon atoms.

These alkenyl or alkyl succinimides that can be used herein are disclosed in numerous references and are well known in the art. Certain fundamental types of succinimides and related materials encompassed by the term of art "succinimide" are taught in U.S. Pat. Nos. 2,992,708; 3,018,291; 3,024,237; 3,100,673; 3,219,666; 3,172,892; and 3,272,746, the disclosures of which are hereby incorporated by reference. The term "succinimide" is understood in the art to include many of the amide, imide and amidine species which are also formed by this reaction. The predominant product however is succinimide and this term has been generally accepted as meaning the product of a reaction of an alkenyl substituted succinic acid or anhydride with a polyamine as shown in reaction (1) above. As used herein, included within this term are the alkenyl or alkyl mono-, bis-succinimides and other higher analogs.

A(1) SUCCINIC ANHYDRIDE

The preparation of the alkenyl-substituted succinic anhydride by reaction with a polyolefin and maleic anhydride has been described, e.g., U.S. Pat. Nos. 3,018,250 and 3,024,195. Such methods include the thermal reaction of the polyolefin with maleic anhydride and the reaction of a halogenated polyolefin, such as a chlorinated polyolefin, with maleic anhydride. Reduction of the alkenyl-substituted succinic anhydride yields the corresponding alkyl derivative. Alternatively, the alkenyl substituted succinic anhydride may be prepared as described in U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,388,471 and 4,450,281 which are totally incorporated herein by reference.

Polyolefin polymers for reaction with the maleic anhydride are polymers comprising a major amount of C2 to C5 mono-olefin, e.g., ethylene, propylene, butylene, isobutylene and pentene. The polymers can be homopolymers such as polyisobutylene as well as copolymers of 2 or more such olefins such as copolymers of: ethylene and propylene, butylene, and isobutylene, etc. Other copolymers include those in which a minor amount of the copolymer monomers, e.g., 1 to 20 mole percent is a C4 to C8 nonconjugated diolefin, e.g., a copolymer of isobutylene and butadiene or a copolymer of ethylene, propylene and 1,4-hexadiene, etc.

The polyolefin polymer, the alkenyl or alkyl moiety which is represented as R, usually contains from about 10 to 300 carbon atoms, although preferably 10 to 200 carbon atoms; more preferably 12 to 100 carbon atoms and most preferably 20-100 carbon atoms.

A particularly preferred class of olefin polymers comprises the polybutenes, which are prepared by polymerization of one or more of 1-butene, 2-butene and isobutene. Especially desirable are polybutenes containing a substantial proportion of units derived from isobutene. The polybutene may contain minor amounts of butadiene which may or may not be incorporated in the polymer. Most often the isobutene units constitute 80%, preferably at least 90%, of the units in the polymer. These polybutenes are readily available commercial materials well known to those skilled in the art. Disclosures thereof will be found, for example, in U.S. Pat. Nos. 3,215,707; 3,231,587; 3,515,669; and 3,579,450, as well as U.S. Pat. No. 3,912,764. The above are incorporated by reference for their disclosures of suitable polybutenes.

In addition to the reaction of a polyolefin with maleic anhydride, many other alkylating hydrocarbons may likewise be used with maleic anhydride to produce alkenyl succinic anhydride. Other suitable alkylating hydrocarbons include cyclic, linear, branched and internal or alpha olefins with molecular weights in the range 100-4,500 or more with molecular weights in the range of 200-2,000 being more preferred. For example, alpha olefins obtained from the thermal cracking of paraffin wax. Generally, these olefins range from 5-20 carbon atoms in length. Another source of alpha olefins is the ethylene growth process which gives even number carbon olefins. Another source of olefins is by the dimerization of alpha olefins over an appropriate catalyst such as the well known Ziegler catalyst. Internal olefins are easily obtained by the isomerization of alpha olefins over a suitable catalyst such as silica.

A(2) POLYAMINE

The polyamine employed to prepare the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides is preferably polyamine having from 2 to about 12 amine nitrogen atoms and from 2 to about 40 carbon atoms. The polyamine is reacted with an alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride to produce the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide, employed in this invention. The polyamine is so selected so as to provide at least one basic amine per succinimide. Since the reaction of a nitrogen of a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide to form a hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl, a hydroxy hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl or a hydroxy polyoxyalkylene oxycarbonyl is believed to efficiently proceed through a secondary or primary amine, at least one of the basic amine atoms of the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide must either be a primary amine or a secondary amine. Accordingly, in those instances in which the succinimide contains only one basic amine, that amine must either be a primary amine or a secondary amine. The polyamine preferably has a carbon-to-nitrogen ratio of from about 1:1 to about 10:1.

The polyamine portion of the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide may be substituted with substituents selected from (A) hydrogen, (B) hydrocarbyl groups of from 1 to about 10 carbon atoms, (C) acyl groups of from 2 to about 10 carbon atoms, and (D) monoketo, monohydroxy, mononitro, monocyano, lower alkyl and lower alkoxy derivatives of (B) and (C). "Lower", as used in terms like lower alkyl or lower alkoxy, means a group containing from 1 to about 6 carbon atoms. At least one of the substituents on one of the amines of the polyamine is hydrogen, e.g., at least one of the basic nitrogen atoms of the polyamine is a primary or secondary amino nitrogen atom.

Hydrocarbyl, as used in describing the polyamine components of this invention, denotes an organic radical composed of carbon and hydrogen which may be aliphatic, alicyclic, aromatic or combinations thereof, e.g., aralkyl. Preferably, the hydrocarbyl group will be relatively free of aliphatic unsaturation, i.e., ethylenic and acetylenic, particularly acetylenic unsaturation. The substituted polyamines of the present invention are generally, but not necessarily, N-substituted polyamines. Exemplary hydrocarbyl groups and substituted hydrocarbyl groups include alkyls such as methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl, isobutyl, pentyl, hexyl, octyl, etc., alkenyls such as propenyl, isobutenyl, hexenyl, octenyl, etc., hydroxyalkyls, such as 2-hydroxyethyl, 3-hydroxypropyl, hydroxyisopropyl, 4-hydroxybutyl, etc., ketoalkyls, such as 2-ketopropyl, 6-ketooctyl, etc., alkoxy and lower alkenoxy alkyls, such as ethoxyethyl, ethoxypropyl, propoxyethyl, propoxypropyl, 2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethyl, 2-(2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethyl, 3,6,9,12-tetraoxatetradecyl, 2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)hexyl, etc. The acyl groups of the aforementioned (C) substituents are such as propionyl, acetyl, etc. The more preferred substituents are hydrogen, C1 -C6 alkyls and C1 -C6 hydroxyalkyls.

In a substituted polyamine the substituents are found at any atom capable of receiving them. The substituted atoms, e.g., substituted nitrogen atoms, are generally geometrically inequivalent, and consequently the substituted amines finding use in the present invention can be mixtures of mono- and polysubstituted polyamines with substituent groups situated at equivalent and/or inequivalent atoms.

The more preferred polyamine finding use within the scope of the present invention is a polyalkylene polyamine, including alkylene diamine, and including substituted polyamines, e.g., alkyl substituted polyalkylene polyamine. Preferably, the alkylene group contains from 2 to 6 carbon atoms, there being preferably from 2 to 3 carbon atoms between the nitrogen atoms. Such groups are exemplified by ethylene, 1,2-propylene, 2,2-dimethylpropylene, trimethylene, etc. Examples of such polyamines include ethylene diamine, diethylene triamine, di(trimethylene)triamine, dipropylene triamine, triethylene tetramine, tripropylene tetramine, tetraethylene pentamine, and pentaethylene hexamine. Such amines encompass isomers such as branched-chain polyamines and the previously mentioned substituted polyamines, including hydrocarbyl-substituted polyamines. Among the polyalkylene polyamines, those containing 2-12 amine nitrogen atoms and 2-24 carbon atoms are especially preferred, and the C2 -C5 alkylene polyamines are most preferred, in particular, the lower polyalkylene polyamines, e.g., ethylene diamine, dipropylene triamine, etc.

The polyamine component also may contain heterocyclic polyamines, heterocyclic substituted amines and substituted heterocyclic compounds, wherein the heterocycle comprises one or more 5-6 membered rings containing oxygen and/or nitrogen. Such heterocycles may be saturated or unsaturated and substituted with groups selected from the aforementioned (A), (B), (C) and (D). The heterocycles are exemplified by piperazines, such as 2-methylpiperazine, N-(2-hydroxyethyl)piperazine, 1,2-bis-(N-piperazinyl)ethane, and N,N'-bis(N-piperazinyl)piperazine, 2-methylimidazoline, 3-aminopiperidine, 2-aminopyridine, 2-(3-aminoethyl)-3-pyrroline, 3-aminopyrrolidine, N-(3-aminopropyl)-morpholine, etc. Among the heterocyclic compounds, the piperazines are preferred.

Typical polyamines that can be used to form the compounds of this invention include the following: ethylene diamine, 1,2-propylene diamine, 1,3-propylene diamine, diethylene triamine, triethylene tetramine, hexamethylene diamine, tetraethylene pentamine, methylaminopropylene diamine, N-(betaaminoethyl)piperazine, N,N'-di(betaaminoethyl)piperazine, N,N'-di(beta-aminoethyl)imidazolidone-2, N-(beta-cyanoethyl)ethane-1,2-diamine, 1,3,6,9-tetraaminooctadecane, 1,3,6-triamino-9-oxadecane, N-(beta-aminoethyl)diethanolamine, N-methyl-1,2-propanediamine, 2-(2-aminoethylamino)-ethanol,2-[2-(2-aminoethylamino)ethylamino]-ethanol.

Another group of suitable polyamines are the propyleneamines, (bisaminopropylethylenediamines). Propyleneamines are prepared by the reaction of acrylonitrile with an ethyleneamine, for example, an ethyleneamine having the formula H2 N(CH2 CH2 NH)Z H wherein Z is an integer from 1 to 5, followed by hydrogenation of the resultant intermediate. Thus, the product prepared from ethylene diamine and acrylonitrile would be H2 N(CH2)3 NH(CH2)2 NH(CH2)3 NH2.

In many instances the polyamine used as a reactant in the production of succinimides of the present invention is not a single compound but a mixture in which one or several compounds predominate with the average composition indicated. For example, tetraethylene pentamine prepared by the polymerization of aziridine or the reaction of dichloroethylene and ammonia will have both lower and higher amine members, e.g., triethylene tetramine, substituted piperazines and pentaethylene hexamine, but the composition will be largely tetraethylene pentamine and the empirical formula of the total amine composition will closely approximate that of tetraethylene pentamine. Finally, in preparing the succinimide for use in this invention, where the various nitrogen atoms of the polyamine are not geometrically equivalent, several substitutional isomers are possible and are encompassed within the final product. Methods of preparation of polyamines and their reactions are detailed in Sidgewick's "The Organic Chemistry of Nitrogen", Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1966; Noller's "Chemistry of Organic Compounds", Saunders, Philadelphia, 2nd Ed., 1957; and Kirk-Othmer's "Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology", 2nd Ed., especially Volumes 2, pp. 99-116.

The reaction of a polyamine with an alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride to produce the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides is well known in the art and is disclosed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 2,992,708; 3,018,291; 3,024,237; 3,100,673; 3,219,666; 3,172,892 and 3,272,746. The above are incorporated herein by reference for their disclosures of preparing alkenyl or alkyl succinimides.

As noted above, the term "polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide" refers to both polyamino alkenyl or alkyl mono- and bis-succinimides and to the higher analogs of alkenyl or alkyl poly succinimides. Preparation of the bis- and higher analogs may be accomplished by controlling the molar ratio of the reagents. For example, a product comprising predominately mono- or bis-succinimide can be prepared by controlling the molar ratios of the polyamine and succinic anhydride. Thus, if one mole of polyamine is reacted with one mole of an alkenyl or alkyl substituted succinic anhydride, a predominantely mono-succinimide product will be prepared. If two moles of an alkenyl or alkyl substituted succinic anhydride are reacted per mole of polyamine, a bis-succinimide is prepared. Higher analogs may likewise be prepared.

A particularly preferred class of polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides employed in the process of the instant invention may be represented by Formula II: ##STR2## wherein R is alkenyl or alkyl of from 10 to 300 carbon atoms; R2 is alkylene of 2 to 10 carbon atoms; R3 is hydrogen, lower alkyl or lower hydroxy alkyl; a is an integer from 0 to 10; and W is --NH2 or represents a group of Formula III: ##STR3## wherein R is alkenyl or alkyl of from 10 to 300 carbon atoms; with the proviso that when W is the group of Formula III above, then a is not zero and at least one of R3 is hydrogen.

As indicated above, the polyamine employed in preparing the succinimide is often a mixture of different compounds having an average composition indicated as the Formula II. Accordingly, in Formula II each value of R2 and R3 may be the same as or different from other R2 and R3.

Preferably R is alkenyl or alkyl is preferably 10 to 200 carbon atoms and most preferably 20 to 100 carbon atoms.

Preferably R2 is alkylene of 2 to 6 carbon atoms and most preferably is either ethylene or propylene.

Preferably, R3 is hydrogen.

Preferably, a is an integer from 1 to 6.

In formula II, the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides may be conveniently viewed as being composed of three moieties that is the alkenyl or alkyl moiety R, the succinimide moiety represented by the formula: ##STR4## and the polyamino moiety represented by the group ##STR5##

The preferred alkylene polyamines employed in this reaction are generally represented by the formula: ##STR6## wherein R2 is an alkylene moiety of 2 to 10 carbon atoms and a is an integer from about 0 to 10. However, the preparation of these alkylene polyamines do not produce a single compound and cyclic heterocycles, such as piperazine, may be included to some extent in the alkylene diamines.

B. POLYAMINO ALKENYL OR ALKYL SUCCINIMIDES WHEREIN ONE OR MORE OF THE NITROGENS IS SUBSTITUTED WITH HYDROCARBYL OXYCARBONYL, HYDROXY HYDROCARBYL OXYCARBONYL, OR HYDROXY POLY(OXYALKYLENE)OXYCARBONYL

The polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides wherein one or more of the nitrogens of the polyamino moiety is substituted with a hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl, or a hydroxy hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl wherein said hydrocarbyl contains from 1 to about 20 carbon atoms and said hydroxy hydrocarbyl contains from 2 to about 20 carbon atoms may be prepared by reaction with a cyclic carbonate; by reaction with a linear mono- or poly-carbonate; or by reaction with a suitable chloroformate. Hydroxy poly(oxyalkylene)oxycarbonyl may be formed by reaction with a suitable chloroformate. The products so produced are effective dispersant and detergent additives for lubricating oils and for fuel.

Hydrocarbyl, as used in describing the hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl components of this invention, denotes an organic radical composed of carbon and hydrogen which may be aliphatic, aromatic or combinations thereof, e.g., aralkyl. The hydrocarbyl group contains from about 1 to 20 carbon atoms, preferably 2 to 10 carbon atoms and most preferably 2 to 7 carbon atoms. Suitable hydrocarbyls are alkyls such as methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl, isobutyl, pentyl, hexyl, octyl, etc.; alkenyls such as propenyl, isobutenyl, hexenyl, octenyl, etc.; aralkyl such as benzyl, and the like; aryls such as phenyl, naphthyl, and the like.

Hydroxy substituted hydrocarbyl, as used in describing the hydroxy hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl components of this invention, denotes an organic radical composed of carbon and hydrogen containing 1 to 6 hydroxy groups, preferably 1 to 3, more preferably 1 to 2 hydroxy groups and most preferably 1 hydroxy group. It is also possible that some keto and aldehyde groups may be present in these hydroxy substituted hydrocarbyls. In the preferred embodiment the hydroxy hydrocarbyl does not contain ketone or aldehyde groups. The hydroxy substituted hydrocarbyl group contains from 2 to 20 carbon atoms, preferably 2 to 10 carbon atoms and most preferably 2 to 7 carbon atoms. Suitable hydroxy hydrocarbyls are hydroxy alkyls such as 2-hydroxyethyl, 3-hydroxypropyl, hydroxyisopropyl, 4-hydroxybutyl, 6-hydroxyhexyl, 2,3-dihydroxypropyl and the like. Some hydroxy alkyls may also be termed "hydroxyalkylene" such as 3-hydroxypropylene (HOCH2 CH2 CH2 --) and are included within the term hydroxy alkyls defined above. Other suitable hydroxyhydrocarbyls are hydroxy aralkyls such as 3-hydroxy-2-phenylpropyl ##STR7## 1-hydroxy-4,4'-diphenylene dimethylmethane ##STR8## and the like.

Hydroxy poly(oxyalkylene), as used in describing the hydroxy poly(oxyalkylene)oxycarbonyl components of this invention, denotes a polymer containing from 2 to 30 C2 -C5 oxyalkylene units and may be represented by the formula: ##STR9## wherein alkylene is a C2 -C5 alkylene group and s is an integer from 2 to 30.

B(1) CYCLIC CARBONATES

The polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide wherein one or more of the nitrogens of the succinimide is substituted with a hydroxy hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl may be prepared by reaction of a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide with a cyclic carbonate. This reaction is conducted at a temperature sufficient to cause reaction of the cyclic carbonate with the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide. In particular, reaction temperatures of from about 0° C. to about 250° C. are preferred with temperatures of from about 100° C. to 200° C. being more preferred and temperatures of from 150° to 180° C. are most preferred.

The reaction may be conducted neat--that is, both the alkenyl or alkyl succinimide and the cyclic carbonate are combined in the proper ratio, either alone or in the presence of a catalyst, such as an acidic, basic or Lewis acid catalyst, and then stirred at the reaction temperature. Examples of suitable catalysts include, for instance, phosphoric acid, boron trifluoride, alkyl or aryl sulfonic acid, alkali or alkaline carbonate.

Alternatively, the reaction may be conducted in a diluent. For example, the reactants may be combined in a solvent such as toluene, xylene, oil or the like, and then stirred at the reaction temperature. After reaction completion, volatile components may be stripped off. When a diluent is employed, it is preferably inert to the reactants and products formed and is generally used in an amount sufficient to insure efficient stirring.

Water, which can be present in the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide, may be removed from the reaction system either before or during the course of the reaction via azeotroping or distillation. After reaction completion, the system can be stripped at elevated temperatures (100° C. to 250° C.) and reduced pressures to remove any volatile components which may be present in the product.

Another embodiment of the above process is a continuous system in which the alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride and polyamine are added at the front end of the system while the organic carbonate is added further downstream in the system.

In such a continuous system, the organic carbonate may be added at any time after mixing of the alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride with the polyamine has occurred. Preferably, the organic carbonate is added within two hours after mixing of the alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride with the polyamine, preferably after the major portion of the amine has reacted with the anhydride.

In a continuous system, the reaction temperature may be adjusted to maximize reaction efficiency. Accordingly, the temperature employed in the reaction of the alkyl or alkenyl succinic anhydride with a polyamine may be the same as or different from that which is maintained for the reaction of this resulting product with the cyclic carbonate. In such a continuous system, the reaction temperature is generally between 0°-250° C.; preferably between 125°-200° C.; and most preferably between 150°-180° C. Thus, another aspect of the instant invention is a continuous process which comprises (a) contacting at a temperature sufficient to cause reaction in alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride with a polyamine; and (b) then contacting at a temperature sufficient to cause reaction the product of (a) above with a cyclic carbonate.

Mole ratios of the cyclic carbonate to the basic amine nitrogen of the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide employed in the process of this invention are generally in the range of from about 0.2:1 to about 10:1; although preferably from about 0.5:1 to about 5:1; more preferably from 1:1 to 3:1 another preferred embodiment is 2:1.

The reaction is generally complete from with 0.5 to 10 hours.

Preferred cyclic carbonates include: ##STR10## wherein R4, R5, R6, R7, R8 and R9 are independently selected from hydrogen or lower alkyl of 1 to 2 carbon atoms; R10 is either hydrogen or hydroxy; and n is an integer from 0 to 1.

Preferred cyclic carbonates for use in this invention are those of formula 1 above. Preferred R4, R5, R6, R7, R8 and R9 are either hydrogen or methyl. Most preferably R4, R5, R6, R7, R8 and R9 are hydrogen when n is one. R8 is most preferably hydrogen or methyl while R4, R5, and R9 are hydrogen when n is zero.

The following are examples of suitable cyclic carbonates for use in this invention: 1,3-dioxolan-2-one(ethylene carbonate); 4-methyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one(propylene carbonate); 4-hydroxymethyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one; 4,5-dimethyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one; 4-ethyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one; 4,4-dimethyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one; 4-methyl-5-ethyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one; 4,5-diethyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one; 4,4-diethyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one; 1,3-dioxan-2-one; 4,4-dimethyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 5,5-dimethyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 5,5-dihydroxymethyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 5-methyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 4-methyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 5-hydroxy-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 5-hydroxymethyl-5-methyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 5,5-diethyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 5-methyl-5-propyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 4,6-dimethyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one; 4,4,6-trimethyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one and spiro[1,3-oxa-2-cyclohexanone-5,5'-1',3'-oxa-2'-cyclohexanone]. Other suitable cyclic carbonates may be prepared from sacchrides such as sorbitol, glucose, fructose, galactose and the like and from visconal diols prepared from C1 -C30 olefins by methods known in the art.

Several of these cyclic carbonates are commercially available such as 1,3-dioxolan-2-one or 4-methyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-one. Cyclic carbonates may be readily prepared by known reactions. For example, reaction of phosgene with a suitable alpha alkane diol or an alkan-1,3-diol yields a carbonate for use within the scope of this invention as for instance in U.S. Pat. No. 4,115,206 which is incorporated herein by reference.

Likewise, the cyclic carbonates useful for this invention may be prepared by transesterification of a suitable alpha alkane diol or an alkan-1,3-diol with, e.g., diethyl carbonate under transesterification conditions. See, for instance, U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,384,115 and 4,423,205 which are incorporated herein by reference for their teaching of the preparation of cyclic carbonates.

As used herein, the term "alpha alkane diol" means an alkane group having two hydroxyl substituents wherein the hydroxyl substituents are on adjacent carbons to each other. Examples of alpha alkane diols include 1,2-propanediol, 2,3-butanediol and the like.

The term "alkan-1,3-diol" means an alkane group having two hydroxy substituents wherein the hydroxyl substituents are beta substituted. That is, there is a methylene or a substituted methylene moiety between the hydroxyl substituted carbons. Examples of alkan-1,3-diols include propan-1,3-diol, pentan-2,4-diol and the like.

As used herein, the term "hydroxy hydrocarbyl oxycarbonyl" refers to the group ##STR11## the term "hydrocarbyloxy carbonyl" refers to the group ##STR12## and the term "hydroxy poly(oxyalkylene)oxycarbonyl" refers to the group ##STR13##

As used herein, the term "spiro[1,3-oxa-2-cyclohexanone-5,5'-1',3'-oxa-2'cyclohexanone]" means the group ##STR14##

As used herein, the term "molar charge of cyclic carbonate (or chloroformate or linear carbonate) to the basic nitrogen of a polyamino alkenyl or alkylsuccinimide" means that the molar charge of cyclic carbonate (or chloroformate or linear carbonate) employed in the reaction is based upon the theoretical number of basic nitrogens contained in the succinimide. Thus, when 1 equivalent of triethylene tetraamine (TETA) is reacted with an equivalent of succinic anhydride, the resulting monosuccinimide will theoretically contain 3 basic nitrogens. Accordingly, a molar charge of 1 would require that a mole of cyclic carbonate (or chloroformate or linear carbonate) be added for each basic nitrogen or in this case 3 moles of cyclic carbonate for each mole of monosuccinimide prepared from TETA.

The alpha alkane diols, used to prepare the 1,3-dioxolan-2-ones employed in this invention, are either commercially available or may be prepared from the corresponding olefin by methods known in the art. For example, the olefin may first react with a peracid, such as peroxyacetic acid or hydrogen peroxide to form the corresponding epoxide which is readily hydrolyzed under acid or base catalysis to the alpha alkane diol. In another process, the olefin is first halogenated to a dihalo derivative and subsequently hydrolyzed to an alpha alkane diol by reaction first with sodium acetate and then with sodium hydroxide. The olefins so employed are known in the art.

The alkan-1,3-diols, used to prepare the 1,3-dioxan-2-ones employed in this invention, are either commercially available or may be prepared by standard techniques, e.g., derivatizing malonic acid.

4-Hydroxymethyl 1,3-dioxolan-2-one derivatives and 5-hydroxy-1,3-dioxan-2-one derivatives may be prepared by employing glycerol or substituted glycerol in the process of U.S. Pat. No. 4,115,206. The mixture so prepared may be separated, if desired, by conventional techniques. Preferably the mixture is used as is.

5,5-Dihydroxymethyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one may be prepared by reacting an equivalent of pentaerythritol with an equivalent of either phosgene or diethylcarbonate (or the like) under transesterification conditions.

5-hydroxymethyl-5-methyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one may be prepared by reacting an equivalent of trimethylolethane with an equivalent of either phosgene or diethylcarbonate (or the like) under transesterification conditions.

Spiro[1,3-oxa-2-cyclohexanone-5,5'-1',3'-oxa-2'-cyclohexanone] may be prepared by reacting an equivalent of pentaerythritol with two equivalents of either phosgene or diethylcarbonate (or the like) under transesterification conditions.

Cyclic carbonates of Formula I are used to illustrate the reaction of a cyclic carbonate with a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide. It is to be understood that the other cyclic carbonates employed in this invention react similarly. Cyclic carbonates may react with the primary and secondary amines of a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide to form two types of compounds. In the first instance, strong bases, including unhindered amines such as primary amines and some secondary amines, react with an equivalent of cyclic carbonate to produce a carbamic ester as shown in reaction (2) below: ##STR15## wherein R4, R5, R6, R7, R8, R9 and n are as defined above and R11 is the remainder of a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide. In this reaction, the amine nitrogen has been rendered nonbasic by formation of the carbamate, V.

In the second instance, hindered bases, such as hindered secondary amines, may react with an equivalent of the same cyclic carbonate to form a hydroxyalkyleneamine linkage with the concomitant elimination of CO2 as shown below in reaction (3): ##STR16## wherein R4, R5, R6, R7, R8, R9, R11 and n are as defined above and R12 is an alkyl or alkylene linking group which hinders the amine. Unlike the carbamate products of reaction (1), the hydroxyalkyleneamine products of reaction (2) retain their basicity. These hydroxyalkyleneamine derivatives, VII, (when n=0) are believed to be similar to those which are produced by the addition to an alkenyl or alkyl succinimide of a substituted ethylene oxide of the formula: ##STR17## wherein R4, R5, R6 and R7 are as defined above. (See for instance U.S. Pat. Nos. 3,367,943 and 3,377,111).

In theory, if only primary and secondary amines are employed in the polyamine moiety of the succinimide a determination of whether the carbonate addition follows reaction (1) or reaction (2) could be made by monitoring the AV (alkalinity value or alkalinity number--refers to the amount of base as milligrams of KOH in 1 gram of a sample) of the product. Accordingly, if the reaction proceeded entirely via reaction (1) above, a reaction product prepared by reacting an equivalent of carbonate for each basic nitrogen should yield an AV of zero. That is to say that all the basic amines in the polyamine moiety have been converted to nonbasic carbamates.

However, as previously noted, alkylene polyamines such as triethylene tetraamine and tetraethylene pentamine (e.g., tetraethylenepentaamine-TEPA and triethylenetetramine-TETA), contain tertiary amines (piperazines, etc.) which may account for as much as 30% of the basic nitrogen content. Although Applicant does not want to be limited to any theory, it is believed that these tertiary amines, although basic, are not reactive with the carbonate. Accordingly, even if the reaction proceeded entirely by reaction (1) above, an AV of approximately 30% of the original AV may be retained in the final product. Nevertheless, a large drop in the AV of the product is significant evidence that a substantial portion of the reaction product contains carbamic esters.

In fact, the addition of approximately one equivalent of ethylene carbonate for each basic nitrogen appreciably lowers the AV for the monosuccinimide (1), for the bis-succinimide (2), and for the mono-succinimide (3). This indicates that a substantial portion of the first equivalent of ethylene carbonate is adding to the succinimide via reaction (1) yielding hydroxy hydrocarbyl carbamic esters.

1. Succinimide (1) is the product obtained from the reaction of triethylenetetramine (TETA) and polyisobutenyl succinic anhydride (average MW=1050) wherein the molar charge of TETA to the polyisobutenyl succinic anhydride is 0.90. Diluent oil is then added to obtain a concentration of approximately 50 percent actives.

2. Succinimide (2) is the product obtained from the reaction of tetraethylene pentamine (TEPA) and polyisobutenyl succinic anhydride (Average MW=1050). The molar charge of TEPA to the polyisobutenylsuccinic anhydride is 0.5 which gives a bis-succinimide. Diluent oil is then added to obtain a concentration of approximately 50 percent actives.

3. Succinimide (3) is the reaction product obtained from tetraethylene pentamine (TEPA) and polyisobutenyl succinic anhydride (Average MW=1050). The molar charge of TEPA to the polyisobutenyl succinic anhydride is 0.87 which gives a mono-succinimide. Diluent oil is then added to obtain a concentration of approximately 50 percent actives.

On the other hand, the addition of a second equivalent of ethylene carbonate in these reactions does not result in appreciably further lowering of the AV. This suggests that the additional carbonate either reacts via reaction (2) above, if reactive amino nitrogen is available, to form hydroxyakyleneamine groups or are reacting with the hydroxyl group of the carbamate as shown in reaction 3(a) below: ##STR18## wherein R4, R5, R6, R7, R8, R9, R11 and n are as defined above.

The process of reaction 4a allows for additional carbonate to add to the hydroxyl group of product IX to form a hydroxy tri(oxyalkylene)carbamate as shown in reaction 3(b) below: ##STR19## wherein R4, R5, R6, R7, R8, R9 and R11 are as defined above. As is apparent from the above reaction, the poly(oxyalkylene) portion of the carbamate can be repeated several times, generally up to 10 times or more, simply by addition of more carbonate to form a hydroxy poly(oxyalkylene)carbamate.

Likewise, additional equivalents of carbonate could equally add to the hydroxyl group of the hydroxyalkyleneamine derivative, VII, of reaction (3) as shown in reaction (5) below: ##STR20## wherein R4, R5, R6, R7, R8, R9, R11 and R12 are as defined above. Repeating the process of reaction (5) above by the addition of increasing amounts of carbonate produces a hydroxyalkylenepoly(oxyalkylene)amine derivative of Formula XII below: ##STR21## wherein R4, R5, R6, R7, R8, R9, R11 and R12 and n are as defined above and y is an integer from 3 to 10.

It is also contemplated that reactions (4) and (5) above may also produce acyclic carbonate linkages with the terminal hydroxy group. Likewise, if R11 (or R12) is hydrogen, then an additional hydroxyalkylene could add to the amino group.

Accordingly, it is expected that the reaction of a cyclic carbonate with a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide will yield a mixture of products. When the molar charge of the cyclic carbonate to the basic nitrogen of the succinimide is about 1 or less, it is anticipated that a large portion of the primary and secondary amines of the succinimide will have been converted to hydroxy hydrocarbyl carbamic esters with some hydroxyhydrocarbylamine derivatives also being formed. As the mole ratio is raised above 1, poly(oxyalkylene) polymers of the carbamic esters and the hydroxyhydrocarbylamine derivatives are expected.

It is expected that use of the spiro[1,3-oxa-2-cyclohexanone-5,5'-1',3'-oxa-2'-cyclohexanone] may yield internally cyclized products and also bring about crosslinking between two succinimides.

In some instances, it may be desirable to increase the proportion of carbamic esters formed in these reactions. This may be accomplished by changing reaction conditions such as temperature or the rate of addition of cyclic carbonate, etc. or employing a polyamine with a large percentage of primary amine. Another method may be to employ alkyl-substituted (i.e., one or more of R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, or R6 is alkyl) or hydroxyalkyl substituted carbonates. Still another method would be to employ a 6-membered ring cyclic carbonate.

B(2) LINEAR MONO- OR POLYCARBONATES

Linear carbonates react with a basic nitrogen of a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide to form carbamates. Suitable linear carbonates include both monocarbonates of formula XIII and polycarbonates of formula XIV: ##STR22## wherein R14 is independently hydrocarbyl of from 1 to about 20 carbon atoms; R15 is hydroxy hydrocarbyl of from 2 to 20 carbon atoms; R16 is a divalent hydrocarbyl group of from 2 to 20 carbon atoms, m is an integer from 0 to 10 or more; n is an integer of from 1 to 200.

Preferably R14 is hydrocarbyl of from 1 to 10 carbon atoms; R15 is hydroxy hydrocarbyl of from 2 to 10 carbon atoms; R16 is a divalent hydrocarbyl of from 2 to 10 carbon atoms; and n is preferably an integer from 1 to 100 and most preferably 1 to 10.

Monocarbonates, XIII, are believed to react with primary or secondary amines of a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide, with the concommittant elimination of the alcohol, R14 OH, as shown in reaction (6) below: ##STR23## wherein R11 and R14 are as defined above.

Reaction (6) is conducted by contacting the monocarbonate with a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide. The reaction is conducted at a temperature sufficient to cause reaction of the monocarbonate with the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide. In particular, reaction temperatures of from about 100° C. to about 250° C. are preferred with temperatures of from about 150° C. to 250° C. being most preferred.

The reaction may be conducted neat--that is, both the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide and the carbonate are combined in the proper ratio, either alone or in the presence of a catalyst, such as an acidic, basic or Lewis acid catalyst, and then stirred at the reaction temperature. Examples of suitable catalysts include, for instance, phosphoric acid, boron trifluoride, alkyl or aryl sulfonic acid, alkali or alkaline carbonate.

Alternatively, the reaction may be conducted in a diluent. For example, the reactants may be combined in a solvent such as toluene, xylene, oil or the like, and then stirred at the reaction temperature. After reaction completion, volatile components may be stripped off. When a diluent is employed, it is preferably inert to the reactants and products formed and is generally used in an amount sufficient to insure efficient stirring.

Water, which can be present in the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide, may be removed from the reaction system either before or during the course of the reaction via azeotroping or distillation. After reaction completion, the system can be stripped at elevated temperatures (100° C. to 250° C.) and reduced pressures to remove any volatile components which may be present in the product.

Another embodiment of the above process is a continuous flow system in which the alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride and polyamine are added at the front end of the flow while the hydrocarbyl carbonate is added further downstream in the system.

Mole ratios of the hydrocarbyl carbonate to the basic amine nitrogen of the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide employed in the process of this invention are generally in the range of from about 0.2:1 to about 1:1; preferably 0.5:1 to about 1:1 and most preferably 0.7:1 to about 1:1.

The reaction is generally complete from within 0.5 to 10 hours.

Suitable monocarbonates, XIII, may be prepared by transesterifying diethyl carbonate or a similar material using conditions well known in the art. Suitable monocarbonates include dimethyl carbonate, diethyl carbonate, di-n-propyl carbonate, diisopropylcarbonate, diphenyl carbonate, di-n-butyl carbonate, dibenzyl carbonate, and the like.

Linear polycarbonates are of the general formula: ##STR24## wherein R15, R16, m and n as defined above. These polycarbonates react with a primary or secondary amine of the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide to form a carbamate as shown in reaction (7) below wherein for the sake of illustration m is limited to 0: ##STR25## wherein R11, R15 and R16 are as defined above and p and q are integers such that p+q=n. Further reaction of the polycarbonate, with another primary or secondary amine of the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide will split off additional units of carbonate from either XVI or XVII. Accordingly, continued reaction of the polycarbonate with the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide reduces the size of the polycarbonate until either no additional reactive amine nitrogens are available to react with the carbonate or each carbonate unit of the polycarbonate has been reacted with a primary or secondary amine to form a compound of the formula: ##STR26## wherein R11 and R16 are as defined above. By controlling the amount of polycarbonate employed so that the total number of carbonate units contained therein is less than the total number of available primary and secondary amines, the carbamates of formula XVIII will be formed. If excess polycarbonate is employed such that the total number of carbonate units is greater than the total number of available primary and secondary amines, carbamates of formula, XVI, which contain one or more carbonate units, are formed. These carbamates are useful dispersants and detergents and may be added to the lubricating oil or fuel as is. Alternatively, the carbamates of formula XVI may be treated with an excess of alcohol such as ethanol at elevated temperatures under transesterification conditions to remove the carbonate functions in formula XVI as shown in reaction (8) below: ##STR27## The carbamates of formula XVIII may be post-treated with a cyclic carbonate such as ethylene carbonate to form a hydroxy polyoxyalkylene derivative similar to that of formula X above.

Reaction (7) is conducted at a temperature sufficient to cause reaction of the polycarbonate, XIV, with the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide, IV. In particular, reaction temperatures of from about 0° C. to about 250° C. are preferred with temperatures of from about 100° C. to 200° C. being most preferred.

The reaction may be conducted neat--that is, both the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide and the polycarbonate are combined in the proper ratio, either alone or in the presence of a catalyst, such as an acidic, basic or Lewis acid catalyst, and then stirred at the reaction temperature. Examples of suitable catalysts include, for instance, phosphoric acid, boron trifluoride, alkyl or aryl sulfonic acid, alkali or alkaline carbonate.

Alternatively, the reaction may be conducted in a diluent. For example, the reactants may be combined in a solvent such as toluene, xylene, oil or the like, and then stirred at the reaction temperature. After reaction completion, volatile components may be stripped off. When a diluent is employed, it is preferably inert to the reactants and products formed and is generally used in an amount sufficient to insure efficient stirring.

Water, which can be present in the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide, may be removed from the reaction system either before or during the course of the reaction via azeotroping or distillation. After reaction completion, the system can be stripped at elevated temperatures (100° C. to 250° C.) and reduced pressures to remove any volatile components which may be present in the product.

Another embodiment of the above process is a continuous flow system in which the alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride and polyamine are added at the front end of the flow while the polycarbonate is added further downstream in the system.

Mole ratios of the individual carbonate units of polycarbonate to the basic amine nitrogen of the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide employed in the process of this invention are generally in the range of from about 0.1:1 to about 5:1 although preferably from about 0.5:1 to about 1:1.

The reaction is generally complete from within 0.5 to 10 hours.

Suitable polycarbonates may be prepared as described in U.S. Pat. No. 4,423,205. This patent is incorporated herein by reference for its teaching of the preparation of polycarbonates.

In preparing the polycarbonates of formula XIV, an excess of a suitable hydrocarbyl glycol, such as ethylene glycol, propylene glycol and the like, is added to a dihydrocarbyl carbonate, such as diethylcarbonate, under transesterification conditions to theoretically produce the polycarbonates of formula XIV(a) (i.e. m=0) ##STR28## However, in practice, carbon dioxide is evolved during this reaction and the resulting polycarbonate contains some oxyhydrocarbyl content as shown below: ##STR29## wherein m is an integer generally from 0 to 10 or more and hydrocarbyl is derived the hydrocarbyl glycol employed. The amount of oxyhydrocarbyl content between the n carbonate units varies from carbonate unit to carbonate unit.

Preferred polycarbonates for use in this invention are those wherein R15 is hydroxyalkylene and R16 is alkylene wherein alkylene is from 2 to 10 carbon atoms; preferably 2 to 5 carbon atoms. Other preferred polycarbonates are those wherein R15 is HO--Aryl--R17 --Aryl-- and R16 is --Aryl--R17 --Aryl-- wherein R17 is alkylene of from 2 to 5 carbon atoms and aryl is a C6 to C10 aryl. Suitable aryls include benzyl and naphthyl.

B(3) CHLOROFORMATES

Chloroformates and other haloformates react with a primary or secondary amine nitrogen of a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide to form carbamates. Suitable chloroformates include hydrocarbyl chloroformates of formula XIX below; hydroxy protected hydrocarbyl chloroformates of formula XX below and hydroxy protected poly(oxyalkylene) chloroformates of formula XXI: ##STR30## wherein w is an integer from 1 to 6; R18 is hydrocarbyl of from 1 to 20 carbon atoms, R19 is hydrocarbyl of 2 to 20 carbon atoms, R20 is a hydroxy protecting group, alkylene is a C2 -C5 alkylene group and s is an integer from 2 to 30, preferably 2 to 20.

The chloroformates of formulas XIX, XX and XXI react with a primary or secondary amine to form a carbamate as shown in reaction (9) below: ##STR31## wherein R11 and R18 are as defined above.

Reaction (9) is conducted by contacting the chloroformate, XIX (or XX or XXI), with the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide, IV. The reaction may be conducted neat or in a suitable inert diluent. Suitable diluents include ethyl acetate, toluene, xylene, oil and the like. An organic base such as pyridine, triethylamine and the like may be added to the reaction to scavenge the acid generated. However, the generated acid is preferably removed by an alkaline water wash (pH of from 8-9) or an alkaline brine wash (pH 8-9) of the reaction solution after reaction completion without the need of added base. The reaction is generally conducted at from -78° C. to 50° C. with 0°-30° C. being preferred. However, when chloroformate XX or XXI is employed, and the protecting R20 group is trichloroacetate, use of lower temperatures, i.e., -78° C. to 0° C. help prevent possible side products from forming and may be preferred for this purpose. The reaction is generally complete from within 0.5 to 24 hours. However, if the polyamino moiety of the alkenyl or alkyl succinimide contains hydroxyalkyl substitution, it is preferable to conduct reaction (9) at a sufficiently low temperature to prevent reaction of the chloroformate with the hydroxy group resulting in carbonate formation. Generally, temperatures of from -78° C. to 0° C. are sufficiently low to minimize this carbonate formation. In any event, any carbonate so formed from the hydroxyalkyl group during the chloroformate reaction may itself react with a primary or secondary amino nitrogen of the succinimide or may be readily removed by posttreating the product with an alkanol (e.g., ethanol) under transesterification conditions.

After the water washing, the product may be further isolated by conventional techniques such as chromatography, filtration and the like or used in reaction (10) without additional isolation.

The hydroxy protecting group, R20, used in chloroformate, XX and XXI, is any acceptable hydroxy protecting groups which do not contain a functionality which is reactive with a chloroformate or an amine of the succinimide under the reaction conditions. Suitable protecting groups include benzyl, carbobenzoxy ##STR32## trichloroacetyl ##STR33## and the like. The identity of the particular protecting group is not critical provided it can be readily removed from the hydroxy group after reaction (9) is completed. For instance, trichloroacetyl may be removed by an alkaline brine wash (pH of from 8-9); by addition of a dialkylamine (e.g., dimethylamine into the reaction medium; or di-n-butylamine) or by an aqueous solution of tetrahydrofuran containing approximately 30% water at a pH 9-10, conducted at the completion of reaction (9) as shown in reaction (10) below: ##STR34## More extreme reaction conditions (i.e. higher temperature or pH>9-10) may result in product decomposition. Removal of other R20 protecting groups is well known in the art. For example, benzyl and carbobenzoxy protecting groups may be readily removed by hydrogenation using a suitable catalyst such as palladium on carbon. Similarly, carbobenzoxy protecting groups may also be removed by trifluoroacetic acid.

If additional chloroformate, XIX, XX, or XXI is added to the reaction it will react with any available primary or secondary amine of the polyamine alkenyl or alkyl succinimide and convert these to carbamates. Preferably, it is desirable to convert at least 20% of the primary and secondary amines to carbamates; more preferably at least 50% of the primary and secondary amines should be converted to carbamates; and most preferably all of the primary and secondary amines to carbamates.

In general, maximum carbamate formation in the polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide can be obtained by employing a molar charge of chloroformate to the theoretical basic nitrogen of the alkenyl or alkyl succinimide of from 0.7:1 to about 1:1. In some cases, a slight excess of chloroformate may be employed to enhance reaction rate.

Suitable chloroformates of formula XIX include C1 to C20 alkyl chloroformates prepared from the corresponding alcohol by reaction with phosgene. The alcohols are either commercially available or may be readily prepared by reduction of the corresponding carboxylic acid by art recognized techniques.

Suitable chloroformates of formula XX wherein w=1 may be prepared as shown in reactions (10) and (11) below. In these reactions the protecting group R20 is trichloroacetyl although it is understood that other suitable protecting groups may be similarly employed. ##STR35## wherein R19 is as defined above.

Reaction (10) is a conventional esterification reaction and is conducted by combining the diol, XXV, with the acid XXVI, to yield the monester, XXVII. In order to prevent formation of a diester, an excess of diol, XXV, is employed. In general, from 1.1 to 4 equivalents of diol, XXV, and preferably 2 equivalents per equivalent of acid XXVI are employed in reaction (10) although larger excesses may be employed. The reaction may be conducted neat or in a suitable diluent such as toluene, benzene and the like. The water generated during the reaction may be readily removed via a Dean-Stark trap. The product ester, XXVII, may be isolated by conventional techniques such as chromatography, filtration and the like.

Alternatively, the monoester, XXVII, may be prepared by forming the diester of glycol XXV and then hydrolyzing one of the esters to the alcohol to form monoester XXVII.

Reaction (11) is conducted by adding the ester, XXVII, to a suitable inert diluent such as toluene, benzene and the like. Phosgene, XXVIII, is then added to the system over a period of time. Generally, an excess of phosgene is employed. In particular, from approximately 1.4-2.5 equivalents of phosgene is added per equivalent of ester, XXVII. The reaction is conducted at from -10° to 10° C. and is generally complete from within 1/2 to 12 hours. If it is necessary to prevent formation of side products, the ester, XVII, may be slowly added to an excess of phosgene XXVIII. The chloroformate, XXIX, may be isolated by conventional techniques such as distillation but preferably the system is stripped of a portion of the inert diluent which also removes the hydrochloride gas generated. The product XXVIII, and the remaining diluent are then used as is in reaction (9) above.

The glycol, XXV, is either commercially available or may be readily prepared from art recognized techniques.

When w is 2 or more, the chloroformate, XX, is prepared similarly as to reactions (10) and (11) above. However, it is noted that excess polyol in these reactions is not necessary since all but one of the hydroxy groups of the polyol should be protected. Accordingly, if the polyol contains 4 hydroxy groups, three of these should be protected. This can be accomplished by using 3 equivalents of the protecting agent such as trichloroacetic acid. Alternatively, the triester may be prepared by first forming the tetraester and then hydrolyzing one of these esters to a hydroxy group to form the triester. In any case, a mixture is obtained from both procedures and the desired product being isolated by conventional techniques (i.e., chromatography).

Polyols are either commercially available (i.e. glycerol, pentaerythritol, etc.) or may be readily prepared by art recognized techniques.

Chloroformates of formula XXI are prepared similarly as those of formula XX by substituting a poly(oxyalkylene) glycol, XXX, in reactions (10) and (11) above. ##STR36## wherein alkylene and s are as defined above.

The poly(oxyalkylene) glycol materials, XXX, are the addition polymers of lower aliphatic oxides such as ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, the butylene oxides and the pentylene oxides and are prepared by employing a glycol such as ethylene glycol, propylene glycol and the like under polymerization conditions. These materials are commercially available or may be readily prepared.

In the polymerization reaction, a single type of alkylene oxide may be employed, e.g., propylene oxide, in which case the product is a homopolymer, e.g., a poly(oxypropylene)propanol. However, copolymers are equally satisfactory and random copolymers are readily prepared by contacting the hydroxyl-containing compound with a mixture of alkylene oxides, such as a mixture of propylene and butylene oxides. Block copolymers of oxyalkylene units also provide satisfactory poly(oxyalkylene)polymers for the practice of the present invention.

In general, the poly(oxyalkylene)polymers are mixtures of compounds that differ in polymer chain length. However, their properties closely approximate those of the polymer represented by the average composition and molecular weight.

If the polyamino moiety of the alkenyl or alkyl succinimide does not contain hydroxy alkyl substitution, hydroxy alkyl groups may be introduced into the modified succinimides of this invention by addition of a chloroalkanol (e.g., chloroethanol) provided the succinimide retains some basic nitrogen. The chloroalkanol will react with basic nitrogen to yield the hydroxy alkyl group. This reaction may also produce some quaterinized nitrogen products but this may be minimized by controlling the reaction conditions such as by limiting the amount of chloroalkanol added.

Alternatively, the hydroxy hydrocarbyl carbamates may be prepared by reacting the succinimide with an epoxide or hydrocarbyl hydroxy chloride in the presence of CO2. Accordingly, by employing chloroformate, XIX, XX, or XXI, and a polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide of formula II above in the above reactions, compounds of the following formula are produced. ##STR37## wherein R is alkenyl or alkyl of from 10 to 300 carbon atoms; R21 is hydrogen; lower alkyl of from 1 to 6 carbon atoms, lower hydroxy alkyl of from 1 to 6 carbon atoms R2 is alkylene of 2 to 10 carbon atoms, ##STR38## wherein t is an integer from 0 to 6, and hydrocarbyl is a hydrocarbyl group of from 2 to 20 carbon atoms; and ##STR39## wherein alkylene-O is a C2 -C5 oxyalkylene and s is an integer from 2 to 30; a is an integer of from 0 to 10; and T is --NH2, ##STR40## wherein R, hydrocarbyl, alkylene, s and t are as defined above; with the proviso that if T is --NH2 or ##STR41## then a is not zero and at least one of R21 is either ##STR42##

Preferably R is alkenyl or alkyl of from about 12 to 100 carbon atoms; R2 is alkylene of from 2 to 6 carbon atoms; a is an integer of from 1 to 6; R21 is ##STR43##

Preferably t is an integer of from 1 to 6, more preferably 1 to 3, most preferably 1. Carbon atoms having 2 hydroxy groups are hemiketals which readily lose water to form ketones (or aldehydes). For the purpose of this invention, if t is 2 or more then the hydroxy groups are not on the same carbon atom. Moreover, the carbon atom attached to the carbamate cannot be substituted with hydroxy since such hydroxy substitution would require that the starting alcohol XXV (or its equivalent if t is greater than 1) be a hemiketal which is not within the scope of this invention.

In still another aspect of this invention, the hydroxy hydrocarbyl carbamates of formula V, XVIII, XXIII and the like may be post-treated with an alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride of the formula: ##STR44## wherein R is alkenyl or alkyl of from about 10 to 300 carbon atoms.

The reaction is generally conducted by combining the hydroxy hydrocarbyl carbamate and the alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride. The reaction may be conducted neat but preferably on an inert diluent such as toluene, xylene, oil or the like is employed. The reaction is generally conducted at from 50° to 250° C., preferably 100°-200° C. and most preferably 150°-180° C. and is generally complete from within 1 to 24 hours. After reaction completion, the system can be stripped at elevated temperatures and reduced pressures to remove any volatile components which may be present in the product.

Generally, from about 0.1 to 1.5 equivalents of an alkenyl or alkyl succinic anhydride per equivalent of modified polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide is employed, although preferably from about 0.5 to 1.0. In some cases higher amounts (>1.5 equivalents) may be used.

The modified succinimides of this invention can also be reacted with boric acid or a similar boron compound to form borated dispersants having utility within the scope of this invention. In addition to boric acid (boron acid), examples of suitable boron compounds include boron oxides, boron halides and esters of boric acid. Generally from about 0.1 equivalents to 10 equivalents of boron compound to the modified succinimide may be employed.

The modified polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimides of this invention are useful as detergent and dispersant additives when employed in lubricating oils. When employed in this manner, the modified polyamino alkenyl or alkyl succinimide additive is usually present in from 0.2 to 10 percent by weight to the total composition and preferably at about 0.5 to 5 percent by weight. The lubricating oil used with the additive compositions of this invention may be mineral oil or synthetic oils of lubricating viscosity and preferably suitable for use in the crankcase of an internal combustion engine. Crankcase lubricating oils ordinarily have a viscosity of about 1300 CSt 0° F. to 22.7 CSt at 210° F. (99° C.). The lubricating oils may be derived from synthetic or natural sources. Mineral oil for use as the base oil in this invention includes paraffinic, naphthenic and other oils that are ordinarily used in lubricating oil compositions. Synthetic oils include both hydrocarbon synthetic oils and synthetic esters. Useful synthetic hydrocarbon oils include liquid polymers of alpha olefins having the proper viscosity. Especially useful are the hydrogenated liquid oligomers of C6 to C12 alpha olefins such as 1-decene trimer. Likewise, alkyl benzenes of proper viscosity such as didodecyl benzene, can be used. Useful synthetic esters include the esters of both monocarboxylic acid and polycarboxylic acids as well as monohydroxy alkanols and polyols. Typical examples are didodecyl adipate, pentaerythritol tetracaproate, di-2-ethylhexyl adipate, dilaurylsebacate and the like. Complex esters prepared from mixtures of mono and dicarboxylic acid and mono and dihydroxy alkanols can also be used.

Blends of hydrocarbon oils with synthetic oils are also useful. For example, blends of 10 to 25 weight percent hydrogenated 1-decene trimer with 75 to 90 weight percent 150 SUS (100° F.) mineral oil gives an excellent lubricating oil base.

Additive concentrates are also included within the scope of this invention. The concentrates of this invention usually include from about 90 to 10 weight percent of an oil of lubricating viscosity and from about 10 to 90 weight percent of the complex additive of this invention. Typically, the concentrates contain sufficient diluent to make them easy to handle during shipping and storage. Suitable diluents for the concentrates include any inert diluent, preferably an oil of lubricating viscosity, so that the concentrate may be readily mixed with lubricating oils to prepare lubricating oil compositions. Suitable lubricating oils which can be used as diluents typically have viscosities in the range from about 35 to about 500 Saybolt Universal Seconds (SUS) at 100° F. (38° C.), although an oil of lubricating viscosity may be used.

Other additives which may be present in the formulation include rust inhibitors, foam inhibitors, corrosion inhibitors, metal deactivators, pour point depressants, antioxidants, and a variety of other well-known additives.

It is also contemplated the modified succinimides of this invention may be employed as dispersants and detergents in hydraulic fluids, marine crankcase lubricants and the like. When so employed, the modified succinimide is added at from about 0.1 to 10 percent by weight to the oil. Preferably, at from 0.5 to 5 weight percent.

When used in fuels, the proper concentration of the additive necessary in order to achieve the desired detergency is dependent upon a variety of factors including the type of fuel used, the presence of other detergents or dispersants or other additives, etc. Generally, however, and in the preferred embodiment, the range of concentration of the additive in the base fuel is 10 to 10,000 weight parts per million, preferably from 30 to 2,000 weight parts per million, and most preferably from 30 to 700 parts per million of the modified succinimide per part of base fuel. If other detergents are present, a lesser amount of the modified succinimide may be used.

The modified succinimide additives of this invention may be formulated as a fuel concentrate, using an inert stable oleophilic organic solvent boiling in the range of about 150° to 400° F. Preferably, an aliphatic or an aromatic hydrocarbon solvent is used, such as benzene, toluene, xylene or higher-boiling aromatics or aromatic thinners. Aliphatic alcohols of about 3 to 8 carbon atoms, such as isopropanol, isobutylcarbinol, n-butanol and the like, in combination with hydrocarbon solvents are also suitable for use with the fuel additive. In the fuel concentrate, the amount of the additive will be ordinarily at least 10 percent by weight and generally not exceed 70 percent by weight and preferably from 10 to 25 weight percent.

However, the modified succinimides of the instant invention give diesel engine dispersancy performance comparable to succinimides as reported below. The compositions of this invention were tested in a Caterpillar 1-G2 test in which a single-cylinder diesel engine having a 51/8" bore by 61/2" stroke is operated under the following conditions: timing, degrees BTDC, 8; brake mean effective pressure, psi 141; brake horsepower 42; Btu's per minute 5850; speed 1800 RPM; air boost, 53" Hg absolute, air temperature in, 255° F.; water temperature out, 190° F.; and sulfur in fuel, 0.4%. At the end of each 12 hours of operation, sufficient oil is drained from the crankcase to allow addition of 1 quart of new oil. In the test on the lubricating oil compositions of this invention, the 1-G2 test is run for 60 hours. At the end of the noted time period, the engine is dismantled and rated for cleanliness. These results are reported below. Lower values represent cleaner engines.

The base oil used in these tests is a mid-Continent base stock SAE 30 oil containing 18 mmols/kg of a zinc dihydrocarbyl dithiophosphate, 36 mmols/kg of an overbased calcium phenate, and the amount noted in the table of dispersant.
